EverPro – created from upcycled brewers spent grains BSG – sits at the heart of several of the optimised protein blends developed by Osage Food Products to deliver targeted functional properties for better-for-you snacks like nutrition bars and protein shakes.

The SolvPro product line currently has six SKUs, each delivering a protein digestibility corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) of 1.0 and offering different functionalities and benefits.

SolvPro Vegan Plant Protein Blends 008 and 009 are powered by EverPro, a first-of-its-kind barley protein that dissolves almost instantly. EverPro – created by AB InBev’s sustainable ingredient company EverGrain, EverPro is the world’s first commercially available upcycled barley protein.

The SolvPro line with EverPro has been designed to deliver a range of plant-forward, protein-fortified nutrition for today’s modern athlete.

According to EverGrain, recent scientific in-vitro trials showed EverPro to have one of the highest protein true digestibility scores and plant-protein DIAAS scores, as well as one of the fastest protein absorption speeds as compared with whey, soy and premium pea.

It ranks high in absorption and digestibility, and offers great taste and texture in protein fortified products.

Plus, because it’s made from BSG, it emits lower carbon and uses significantly less land and water. In fact, it’s punted as one of the most sustainable proteins on the planet and is certified by the Upcycled Food Association. EverPro is also Non-GMO Project Verified.

Beyond anything currently on the market

“The EverPro protein isolate is the key ingredient in our SolvPro 008 and 009 systems, in combination with pea protein isolate and with added masking agents, this new system delivers a complete plant protein with adequate levels of all the essential amino acids to deliver a PDCAAS of 1.0, equivalent to whey protein isolates,”​ said Bill Dickinson, Osage president.

“This system allows for a very high usage level and protein levels beyond anything currently on the market (>30 grams per serving) with no thick viscosity, chalkiness or off flavours.”

Washington-headquartered Osage has been crafting ingredients and ingredient systems since 1999, combing its expertise in proteins, flavours and masking agents and  sweetener systems to create ontrend solutions for customers.

“We’re so excited to partner with Osage Food Products on their SolvPro solution,”​ said Greg Belt, CEO of EverGrain.

“It truly is a solve, with plants working harder together to give consumers what they crave: great taste, nutrition, and sustainability in their plant-based protein shakes.

“Both EverPro and SolvPro also go great in dairy alternatives, coffee and nutrition bars.”
